This is my second Sunday in a row that I watched The Voice Season 2, Philippine edition. Tonight was a big surprise for me. I realized that not all good voice will be accepted. There was this contestant that I think deserves to be in the main season. She was a US based Filipina, teaching in the school. She went back to the Philippines just to join the blind auditions for the Voice of the Philippines season 2. Sadly, she never made any judge turn their chairs. After she rendered a song, she requested to make a duet with Ms. Lea Salonga. It was a blast when they sang a Miss Saigon song.
For the judges, it was a clear miss on their part when they did not turned chair on this young talented lady. She would have been a good choice for any of them. But even though no chairs turned, still Ms. Lea Salonga gave her a number to make it to Broadway.

I am doing a buy and sell business right now. Most of my customers are hospitals and food institutions. The main item that I deliver to these entities are my plastic sando bags. The sando bags that I deliver are not just ordinary plastic bags. These are biodegradable and food grade approved. This makes my sando bags different from other plastic sando bags that are sold in the market.
Here in the city, sando bags are very in demand because it is affordable and widely used. Today, I just encountered another problem in the procurement of these bags. It is because not all sando bags have 100 pieces content.Mostly sando bags are packed by 80 pieces. Aside from the quantity, there is a color that my customer needs. The color must be green and yellow only. No other color than that. In the color yellow, I don't have any problem with that because there are plenty of stocks around that I can buy. But the green is a big problem for me. This makes the sando bags hard to find.
My suppliers told me that their stock of green sando bags are limited and I have to wait until tomorrow so that they will be able to procure the number of bags that I am requesting from them. I need to deliver these sando bags as soon as possible. The hospital is in need of it and I am pressured by this. I need to get those sando bags to the hospital or else I might lose this customer of mine.

Having a car can be very comfortable, specially when you are always on the go or you have things to carry. Most people living in the city are now driving their own cars. This is because when you use any public transportation it will cause you delay and if you are carrying something it can be hassle for you traveling. That is why many would prefer to have their own car and drive it.
Just like humans, cars also need doctors and they are called mechanic or auto mechanic. They are the doctors of any automobile there is. It is very important to have your car check from time to time so that you are assured that your vehicle is free from any trouble, specially the engine. A preventive maintenance is very ideal for any car.
Auto mechanics have different specializations. There are those who are expert in the engine. There are also those specializing in auto air conditioning and electrical. There are also those who have all these specializations.
Auto doctors are not residing in hospitals. The place where you can find these auto doctors is called the auto shop. The place have all the equipment that can be use in the auto diagnosis for engine trouble.
It is very wise to have your car check to have a peace of mind while on the road. Have a safe ride always.

Politics and politics is often the most discussed topic in the Philippines. If you look at the television set, politicians are being grilled by government inquiries due to anomalies and irregularities in their financial disclosure. Recently, the Vice President is now being dragged into another hidden wealth issue. This is not new in all politicians in the country. Prior to this huge issue, the VP was very vocal on his plans in going for the highest position in the country and that's to be the president.
This current administration spearheaded by Benigno Aquino Jr, is very vocal of get ridding all corrupt officials in the country. In fact, many officials are now being questioned and the former president Gloria Arroyo is not excused by her predecessor. Many anomalies were discovered pointing to the previous administration. Contacts that were irregular and full of loopholes.
Going back to the VP Binay, a normal person would be wooed by the huge assets shown by the blue ribbon committee headed by Sen. Guingona. Many are really expecting the result of this investigation. At the recent news, the VP won't show on the hearings. Guilty or not. The courts will be the one to decide on that matter.
Many names are now showing up or is expected to run for the presidency. This is just my personal opinion. Here are my top names that will show in the Presidential elections in 2016.
1. Mar Roxas. This DILG secretary is the most eligible for the position as president. He used to be the VP candidate but was defeated by Binay during the last presidential election. Mar Roxas or Mr. Palengke is very popular right now. His emergence as presidential candidate will not be a surprise to all.
2. Merriam Defensor Santiago. A legal expert and was a candidate to be the chief justice of the Supreme Court. She is no new as a presidential candidate. She was a candidate before and was defeated by Fidel Ramos for the presidency. Her straight forward thinking and reliable opinion is her asset. But she is fighting cancer right now. Running for the position will be very difficult and stressful for her. The mind is willing but the body is weak. But that is not permanent, I hope.
3. VP Jojo Binay. The current vice president and is also facing investigation due to his hidden wealth. He is also being questioned about overstated building construction contact in his city in Makati. He is the most influential person right now. He is an opposition candidate. With the case is going right now, there is already a cloud in his presidential campaign in 2016.
4. Sen. Chiz Escudero. A neophyte senator who is getting married next year to Heart Evangelista, an actress. Although there is no formal announcement from this senator but his name will always be a contender.
5. Manny Villar. The richest senator at the moment. He was also a presidential candidate during the last presidential election. He has the asset and wits to run the country. The word "masipag" is also associated with this guy. If he could find a good VP candidate for him then he will be a good choice.
6. Sen. Bongbong Marcos. His family name can speak. The son of the Former president Ferdinand Marcos. Sen. Marcos was a big surprise last election. With his tract record as a congressman and all the projects he made to his hometown, Sen. Marcos will be a good option. I hope history will not repeat again if he is the president.
I would like to reiterate that this is just my personal opinion for the coming presidential election. I just hope and pray that the right one will be voted and not the scrap one.
